If your wife is residing in Mexico then the only way for her to be issued a new passport under her married name is ***** ***** Brazilian consulate in Mexico City.
She will need to seek the new passport before her old one expires in February or it is difficult to have the passport issued by Brazil outside of Brazil.
The information given to her by the notary in Brazil is correct, if she is residing in Mexico she needs to take her current passport and her marriage certificate with translation into Portuguese since that is the official language of Brazil, not Spanish.
